My friend and I flew with Go Wild last week and what a fantastic experience we had. From the moment we arrived at the meeting point, to launching the balloon, flying over the glorious Yarra Valley and landing in a paddock full of cows, our experience was nothing short of amazing. It ended with a beautiful 5 star breakfast at... More

If I had my choice over, I would NOT book with this company. Their customer service is appalling and they make things up as they go so that everything turns in their favour. They basically called me a liar because they don't understand their own terms and conditions. I tried to reconcile my problems with the company directly, but it... More

Had a great time. It's very cold so I recommend wearing a beanie, warm shoes and coat (our flight was on a sunny day at the end of december). Friendly crew, felt safe. Ready to go back :)

I had a later morning flight owing to light drizzle at the normal crack of dawn starting time. After a simply superb breakfast at Sweetwater Cafe at Chateau Yering, we got aboard the mini-bus and went a short distance to a nearby paddock to roll-out and inflate the balloon. This was an interesting experience I'd not had before and it... More

This is an account of my experience at Go Wild Ballooning. It had always been on my mom and dad's bucket list to go hot air ballooning, so I snapped up a deal on Groupon. I paid just over $500 for the 4 of us - mom, dad, my sister and me. We had to request a special form from... More

it never entered my mind to ever fly with a hot-air ballon until we were presented with a voucher to do so. we had a great experience with Mark Fraser`s team and dont know why some people write very negative reviews about them. No complaints from us!

I have to agree with the advice below- their customer service is terrible and their business is being run very poorly. Unfortunately Im assuming that far too many people book with them, only to have the same problems and issues and come to read these reviews when it is all too late. Theres nothing more that i can add except... More

Our arrangements and flights with Go Wild Ballooning were very simple. we booked our flight, then rang the night before as directed. We were told that the weather looked good and the flight would proceed. We had a 2 hour drive to get there, but it was well worth it. We met Go Wild Ballooning ground staffer Peter in the... More

Wow! What a morning I had last week! My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary with a balloon flight ant it was absolutely fantastic, a brand new balloon with a pilot who even made my wife feel at ease who was a little frightened just before the event. A truly beautiful experience and so relaxing to be up there........ More
